Back in 2003 I was in party mode. It was everything. Speed, benzos, booze, acid, e, hasch.
I had just bought the O2 midi keyboard and just started to learn reason for real.
This is the 10th or so beat I tried to do, using the midi keyboard and reason.
This beat I did at my friends small apartment, in headphones of shitty quality, on a laptop, on a couch, with the O2 in my lap.
45 min later, my friend stepped in the "booth" (his closet with a borrowed Condenser mic using a simple mic-amp NO MIXER just my sound interface with XLRs
Anyway, I asked him to stop and go back all the time, cause he didnt rap in the same tone as the beat. I said "darker ! sadder! fit the key of the track man!! trust me gonna be epic!"
You know how kids are. And we were kids at 21, most definately.
Anyway, this thing came together at the end, and while the sounds (kick, snare etc) are all Horrible Reason 3.0 stock sounds, horrible mixing, (Everything was mixed inside Reason 3.0 even the vocals, and I had to move the long vocal"bar" mm, per mm, to synch it correctly. I know, completely whack. But it turned out okay anyway for some reason....
I did my best to Re-Master an allready mastered mp3. at 128kbit. Cause I lost the original Reason project file.
Luckily the RMS of the mp3 was around -10dbfs so I had some headroom to fix at least some of the things.
Anyway, again, for the third time, the story he tells, is a story I share 100% with him brotherly.
We went to the same things, did the same things, and were best friends from the first day we met until about, I dunno 10 years later...
Here is the translation. I translated it rhyme for rhyme, but I didnt rhyme in english cause... well, that wouldnt work.
So its just a translation.
I hope you can keep up so it makes sense somewhat, I didnt add timecodes and adding lyrics to a video in Sony Vegas takes like, the longest time in the world and didnt wanna do that.
enjoy the wav (much better bass for some reason) or settle with the youtube.
